I just hope Clark gets well soon, because we need him back there.

During the offseason I hope we find some better backups for the safety positions...well, after we find some linemen first.

Tyrone carter has been a very good backup for us for a number of years. The question should be, is he getting too slow to still be a backup. That answer may be yes. But let's not disparage him for what he did give us.

A. Smith. Wel... That's all I can say. I LOVE the kid. but there is no way I want him on the field if he isn't disciplined.

Funny, just a year and a half ago, many of us were saying that the Safety position was one of the deepest positions for this team.

I also don't want you so ready to jack up the guy in front of you that you forget about the guy behind you.
This isn't about you personally, this is about you professionally!
Hey I'd love to see you jack up Randle El, but at the same time I'd hate to see him fly past you (or any of the other Skins receivers) for a game changing TD (specifically one that gives them the lead or the W)!!
Now learn how to play nice with others in the same uniform, know your role on the field, and I'm sure you'll see more playing time. Until then - just knock out a few return people!!
yup ,just close your mouth and play hard and smart when you get the playing time ..

I didn't even see Carter in the play, probally because I was yelling about how much Gay sucks (that doesn't sound right).

Carter didn't make a great read on the play, and he's not a great DB, but he's a smart veteran who doesn't let guys get behind him and catch huge long passes.

Which is more than anyone can say for Anthony Smith.

It's possible that Smtih will turn out well, but right now he hasn't shown anything on the field to be getting indignant about a lack of playing time.

I dont think that we gave Smith that much of a chance this year to show what he can do.Remember BMac ? He was the nickle corner until Deshea's injury and when he got his chance to play he stepped up and made the plays.

I just think that before saying that A.Smith got burned on each play last year we should be honnest and admit that Tyrone wasnt better.I still remember that long ball to Jones-Drew last year in the playoffs,Carter was the responsable one for that play

bottom line is..yeah Smith looks to be a knucklehead but if he is then why are we keeping him around instead of a Roy Lewis for example ? Smith is in his last contract year so there's a lot of chances that he will play somewhere else next year
